I can't help but think it's related directly to metabolism. Men generally have a faster metabolism, primarily due to higher levels of testoserone. As a result, we tend to burn faster, thus we stay warmer. What can I say, we're Super-charged!!!
That said, men burn through it quicker, which is why women store up more energy, and tend to have more longevity in survival situations.

^^^ That's good to know. I'll be sure to tell Mr Coffeecake, who is 6'3", 175 lbs and <5% body fat, that he just has to take some testosterone and up his metabolic rate so I don't have to hear him complain about being freezing cold all the time.

My fiancee wears longsleeves and sweatshirts in 80 degree summer heat, but her temperature regulation problems stem from her car accident. We keep the thermostat around 75 at home, because that's as hot as I can stand it, and as low as she can tolerate it. She's bundled up in sweaters, and I walk around in shorts. At night, I have no covers and a fan on my side of the bed and she's got 2 blankets.

"Let us hope our weapons are never needed --but do not forget what the common people knew when they demanded the Bill of Rights: An armed citizenry is the first defense, the best defense, and the final defense against tyranny. If guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns. Only the police, the secret police, the military, the hired servants of our rulers. Only the government -- and a few outlaws. I intend to be among the outlaws" - Edward Abbey

Of all the treasures I have, itís the memories that are the most precious.
I brought this up with a female friend of mine a few days later. She offered a few logical theories that, although they might have applied in one or more ways to the lady I saw, don't necessarily apply to all women, particularly my friend. They are;
1. Some women have a circulation problem.
2. Some women have low amounts of body fat, as the lady I noticed did. This is another theory that
may cause women to feel cold.
3. The lady in question may have been wearing an outfit she cared about or one that didn't lend itself to keeping the body warm.
4. The lady may have been wearing something risque, an outfit which, despite her trenchcoat covering her body, did little or nothing to provide warmth.
Perhaps these theories can be of use to some of you.
